Attorney Profile

Rebecca R. Baer is the founding attorney at Baer Family Law, PLLC, in Edina, Minnesota.  With more than a decade of exclusively family law experience, Rebecca serves clients throughout Minnesota in a variety of family law matters, including divorce, child custody, child support, parenting time, spousal maintenance, step-parent and relative adoption and orders for protection.  In addition to traditional litigation services, Rebecca offers unbundled/limited scope legal representation, mediation services, and Collaborative Divorce options depending on each client's specific needs.

Rebecca is dedicated to serving her clients with integrity, efficiency and an understanding that every client has unique needs.  A compassionate and results-driven attorney, Rebecca will work vigorously to settle cases in her clients' best interests and is an effective and experienced litigator when settlement cannot be reached.

After beginning her legal career in the Twin Cities, Rebecca relocated to Denver, Colorado, for five years, where she continued to build her career exclusively in the area of family law.  Practicing family law in another jurisdiction allowed Rebecca to gain valuable knowledge that she uses to compliment and improve her family law practice in Minnesota.

Rebecca graduated with honors from the University of St. Thomas and earned her Doctorate of Law (J.D.) from William Mitchell College of Law, both in St. Paul, Minnesota.  While in law school, Rebecca completed Alternative Dispute Resolution and Family Mediation Training to become a Rule-114 Qualified Neutral.

Throughout her career, Rebecca has volunteered her legal expertise to those in need, most significantly for two years with Colorado Lawyers for Colorado Veterans and for four years as a supervising attorney at the William Mitchell College of Law Pro Bono Family Law Clinic.
